Welcome to Kathleen Taylor Art and Illustration - my online portfolio. I am an artist and illustrator based in London, working mainly in pastel in the landscape.
My strength is in drawing and in 2021, I completed the summer drawing development programme at The Royal Drawing School which has expanded my horizons and creative practice. Drawing for me is about making a connection and developing an understanding of my subject, whatever it may be. It is very important for me to work from life as far as possible, using photographs only as an aid to memory.
I have an interest in process and making by hand, from hand made prints to works made from traditional gesso and natural pigments. This year I discovered a love of landscape, drawing outside in London's parks and open spaces, taking inspiration from the ever-changing environment. This has resulted in my spending a lot of time under trees, sheltering from either the rain or the sun! I am now delighted to be inviting private commissions to produce work of other's favourite outdoor spaces. Click here for details.
